Looking for milkweed

The greatest poem ever known
Is one all poets have outgrown:
The poetry, innate, untold,
Of being only four years old.
~Christopher Morley, To a Child

We have a field across from our house and this year they planted milo. Well, they finally came and harvested it. “E” and I had tried earlier in the year to look for milkweed and explore that area but the weeds and crops were so high that we struggled to get through it. On this day we were able to get right to the milkweed and we also found this huge leaf. “E” is becoming quite the little model lately. I asked her to put the leaf up to her face so we could show how big the leaf was compared to her face. Well, I got a lot of shots of her because she is starting to love posing.

    OMG Julie! These are soooo sweet. I just keep thinking how wonderful it is that you love photography and you get to capture such amazing & beautiful images of your children. When they are older they will cherish the amazing images you have captured of their lives and always treasure them.

    I saw leaves that big in the park recently and I couldn’t belive how large they were. I almost saved one for myself. I love the textured/enhanced images here. Beautiful.

    Awwww…………….she is so cute! Your field made for such interesting backgrounds. I absolutely love the last image – she looks like she is off to explore the world on her own. Lovely set of images…
